The British and later Canada gave the Quebecois many Language rights from the Quebec Act to the Constitution Act of 1867 by making French the co-official language of not only the Province of Quebec but also the Dominion of Canada. The Language Policy of the Constitution Act of 1867 was this!
Constitution Act of 1867
Use of English and French Languages (Section 133)
Either the English or the French Language may be used by any Person in the Debates of the Houses of Parliament of Canada and of the Houses of Legislature of Quebec: and both those Languages shall be used in the respective Records and Journels of those Houses: and either of those Languages may be used by any Person or in any Pleading or Process in or issuing from any Court of Canada established under this Act, and in or from all or any of the Courts of Quebec.
The Acts of the Parliament of Canada and of the Legislature of
Quebec shall be printed and published in both those Languages.
So Under the Constituion Act of 1867 the Language Policy of Canada and its Provinces and Territories were this
National Language(s) of the Dominion of Canada
Provincial Language(s) of the Province of Nova Scotia
Provincial Language(s) of the Province of Prince Edward Island
Provincial Language(s) of the Province of New Brunswick
Provincial Language(s) of the Province of Quebec
Provincial Language(s) of the Province of Ontario
Provincial Language(s) of the Province of Manitoba
Provincial Language(s) of the Province of Saskatchewan
Provincial Language(s) of the Province of Alberta
Provincial Language(s) of the Province of British Columbia
Territorial Language(s) of the Yukon Territory
Territorial Language(s) of the Northwest Territory
The British and Canada gave so many Language rights to the French Canadians, I might add that the French Canadians were given more rights then any defeated people in history. I know had the French won and the British lost the French and Indian War do you think that the French would have given the English Settlers the same language rights as what the British gave the French Canadian Settlers. I think not. The French Canadians abused their rights by creating such anti-English Language Laws as Bill 22, Bill 78 and Bill 101 by removing English as the rightfull co-official language of the Province of Quebec, removing English on Quebec signs or have French twice as large of that of English, by creating a language police (unheard of in a western democracy) chassed out a Million Anglo-Quebecers threw FLQ terror and PQ tyranny. The Carrot has failed to pacify and appease these pigs and now I believe its time for the stick to be used. The Carrort (Appeasement) must be replaced by the Stick (Assimilation). I now think that Canada should now have a policy of Assimilation of the French Canadians into the English Language and Anglo-Canadian culture. The Quebecois treatment of the English Language and Anglo-Quebecers in Quebec are a big reason why I believe that they dont deserve to have the Language rights that were given to them by the British and later Canada in the Quebec and Constitution Acts of 1867.
Canada should copy France in the Anglicisation and Assimilation of the Quebecois. The French Provinces of Alsace and Lorraine used to belong to Germany and was once a combined province of Alsace Lorraine which was a German Speaking Province and had no connection with the French Language, but after World War 1 the French got the Province of Alsace Lorraine and with draconian laws and a policy of shaming the Germany speakers into French speakers, transformed Alsace Lorraine from a majority German speaking province to a Majority French speaking province.

"For the linguistic unity of France the Breton Language must disappear"
Anatole de Monzie
Public Education Minister of France (3rd Republich)
"There are no place for the regional languages and cultures in a France that intends to mark Europe deeply"
President of France (5th Republic)
If France could Frenchify the Province of Alasce Lorraine, why cant Canada Anglicise the Province of Quebec. I think it would be fitting for Canada to Anglicise the Province of Quebec just like how France Frenchify the Province of Alsace Lorraine.
LONG LIVE A UNITED ANGLO-CANADA
